Chris Evans has downplayed reports that he will walk away from the Marvel Cinematic Universe after his contract ends.
Evans is contracted to play Steve Rogers for a further two projects – Captain America: Civil War and the two-part Avengers: Infinity War – after which it is rumored that a different character will become Captain America.
“I gave an interview once where I said I was gonna try and focus a little more on directing, and that’s true, it’s what I’m excited about right now,” Evans told Digital Spy. “But acting is still… I love acting, in no way am I walking away from acting.
“With the shield, it’s a matter of whether or not Marvel wants to keep knocking, but my contract is up after the last Avengers movies.”
